Well, Jammin is testing big bore shocks and shorter rear a-arms. It is all about development and continuous improvement. When did the Hyper 8 come out?

Precisely!! Most of the upgrades included in the kit have been available for a while, they simply put them all in the kit to start with. Good thing if you ask me.
Most people who run them (Hyper 8) have pretty much got everything in the new kit anyway. The only thing I need is the big bore shocks....

if ya look closley at the pics it looks like hoabo has included the front upper a arm link mod like kortz uses on his doesnt look like any upper a arm is there wich that mod greatly reduces push and helps with steering and bump steer personaly i think its a good thing that they released a new kit if i was to buy a hyper 8 and then buy all those hop ups that they include i would have over 800.00 invested in that thing i bet that new buggy aint gonna cost over 500.00

Looks like the stock A-arm setup to me.
Tried the Kortz setup, took it off, the standard setup is better IMO.
